Fodor's Review

On the Horticulture Center's 27 wooded acres are a butterfly garden, a greenhouse where plants and flowers used on city property are grown, and a pavilion in the trees for bird-watching from the woodland canopy. Don't miss the whimsical Seaweed Girl fountain in the display house. The center stands on the site of the 1876 Centennial Exposition's Horticultural Hall.
